About Stainless Steel Wire Rope

Stainless steel is unlike standard steel because of the different variations of chemical elements used during production. This process can be altered at varying degrees to produce different grades, these are assigned an AISI number to identify the grade, for example AISI 316.

The main benefits of stainless steel is its high corrosion resistance in outdoor and wet environments. Stainless rope is typically used in marine environments and other outdoor constructions for this reason. It will not rust or stain and is easy to clean, for this reason it can often be found in the food industry.

A further key feature of stainless steel wire rope is its look. With a smooth and slightly shiny surface this type of rope is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and because of this it is often used for more decorative purposes. Balustrades and barriers are a typical use in this way. For example along old castle ramparts with crumbling walls to keep the public safe whilst climbing them.

Constructions Available.

We offer 3 key types of stainless steel wire rope constructions; 1x19, 7x7 & 7x19, all in a range of diameters varying slightly between constructions. The 1x19 & 7x7 goes up to 12mm diameters whilst the 7x19 goes up to 16mm. They also offer varying degrees of flexibility so speak to our team to ensure you get the right rope for your task.
